We had the privilege of having Elder Van Reenen, Area Seventy
attend and speak at our Newcastle District Conference.
The Newcastle District is growing and covers a vast area. It is
difficult for the entire district to travel for the conference, so we
logistically split it, and only the leaders traveled to the two locations.
Just as in a Stake Conference
we had a Saturday Session and a Sunday Session.
We started in Madadeni Saturday morning:
9:00-10:00 AM District Presidency Meeting
10:00 - 11:00 AM Priesthood Leadership
11:00-12:30 PM Adult Session Madadeni
DRIVE to EZAKHENI (90 minutes)
2:00 - 3:00 PM Priesthood Leadership
3:00 - 4:30 PM Adult Session Ezakheni
Ezakheni Chapel District Conference - Sunday Session
10:00 - 11:30 AM
DRIVE back to Madadeni (90 minutes)
District Conference in a local school in Madadeni - Sunday Session
1:00 - 2:30 PM
Our Elders helped set up and take down chairs for an
estimated 300 in attendance
Elders Bateman, Henley, Thorsen
Elders Isoba, Hansen (AP), Elder Van Reenen, Area Seventy, Jonga,
Elder DePriest (AP) in back.

Thank you to Sister Brown for furnishing sack lunches
for our drive between conferences!
Both President and I spoke just before Elder Van Reenen on Sunday! We
loved spending time with Elder Van Reenen and getting to know more
about him and his family. The conference was also inspiring and edifying!
